The Day We Met tells the story of Claire, a woman in her forties who is suffering from early onset Alzheimer’s Disease. As she begins to lose more and more of her memories and her sense of self, she begins to write in her memory book so she will not forget the important people in her life.
The novel alternates between present day and sections written in the memory book, sometimes told from Claire’s point of view, and sometimes from her daughter, husband, and mother.
I found this book a little difficult to read at times, because of the reality of Alzheimer’s that is presented. However, I thought the book was well written and that the characters were all well developed.
